Nablus (QNN)- Local sources told Wafa that two native Palestinians were wounded in a settlers’ attack on the village of Howarah in southern Nablus.
They explained that Murad Najjar and Sabe’ Owdeh were wounded when Israeli illegal settlers attacked and beat them while they were at work.
The village of Howarah has been a target of settlers’ attacks.
Settler violence has long since become part of Palestinians’ daily life under occupation. Israeli security forces enable these actions, which result in Palestinians casualties – injuries and fatalities – as well as damage to land and property. In some cases, they even serve as an armed escort, or even join in the attacks. Investigations, if even opened, are usually closed with no action taken against perpetrators as part of an undeclared policy of leniency. The long-term effect of this violence is the dispossession of Palestinians from increasing parts of the West Bank, making it easier for Israel to take over land and resources.
